Reverend MARK DAVENPORT
Mark has been the minister at Chelsea and Fulham since September 2017; previously he served at Trinity at Bowes church in North London developing a new model of community church.
He is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus. As a pioneer minister, he would like to see church not just confined to Sundays in a conventional format, but to be part and parcel of everyday life.
Mark believes in a church that transforms, renews and refreshes lives. A church with a servant heart; serving the needs of the community to the glory of God. A church where the good news of Jesus is proclaimed (through word and action) and where discipleship is a natural way of life.

He Completed his training at Wesley House Theological College in Cambridge and arrived at Chelsea Methodist Church in 2012.
